You want to like this place, but for us, the food barely passable; nothing special. Friendly place and the service is good. Portions are large; the food just isn't very good.

Had breakfast here and it wasn't bad. The coffee here is awful, the food itself was pretty good. Service was above average.

We have lunch here several times a week , as it is close to work. The The service is great and the food is always good. Look for the daily specials on the board. We love the burgers , gryos, grilled chicken caeser salad and the soups. Really fast as well!!!

I visited this breakfast/lunch restaurant at about 8:30am during the week. Its a small restaurant and I was looking for some great find; however, this restaurant wasted my time & money.

There was a time this was the only place I would eat. It changed for the worst. They use to give you BIG portions at a reasonable price. Now its just like everybody else.

If you are looking for a home cooking kind of diner, this is it. All the standard breakfast fare and a great lunch menu as well. Have been eating there for 5 years and I think most of the staff is still the same.
